Starters Club - 12 Harland Place

I've previously written about going out for tea to 12 Harland Place and having a lovely time - post here. This time we went there for a special dining event which they've just started running called the Starters Club. The concept of this evening is that you get 8 different starters to eat and then at the end you rate each out of ten. The one that receives the best score will be placed on the menu for the following month.

Everything on the menu was not to my liking as I have a real dislike for seafood. I did however go to the restaurant with the attitude that I would try everything. The food we were served included;
  • black olive, feta cheese, sun dried tomato bruschetta
  • winter pansanella
  • prawn, crayfish and avocado cocktail
  • wild mushroom and truffle risotto balls
  • pan Asian pork in baby gem cups
  • sausage, black pudding and apple stuffing balls
  • chilli fish cakes
  • smoked salmon and citrus herb butter
Although I nibbled through them all none of them stood out as amazing starters. The one that I picked as my favourite was the wild mushroom and truffle risotto balls as I love risotto.

The concept of this night and the restaurant layout is really good. We have booked up for their infamous pudding club, which is the same concept but with puddings and takes place every first Monday of the month. It is so popular that it is booked up until March, so we have to wait until next year to sample their puddings!
